Lost in Swiss Alpine pastures, at the heart of a small and peaceful village, stands the imposing and magnificent wooden structure of the Grand Chalet. It was here, in this unique landscape with its healing climate, that the painter Balthus made his home, enchanted by the fragrances of milk, honey and hints of citrus from the ancient lime trees that surrounded his studio. Today, like a wonderful memory, his favourite perfume fills this place once again.

Adding the freeze-dried kaffir lime powder to the cake and glaze is optional, but we truly adore the intensely fresh and fragrant flavour that it imparts and we're certain you will too.

Coconut Raspberry Kaffir Lime Cake Kit, $27.00

In this exciting new collection of over 200 simple recipes, Anna Jones limits the pans and simplifies the ingredients for all-in-one dinners that keep things fast and easy. There are one-tray dinners, like a baked dahl with tamarind-glazed sweet potato, quick dishes like tahini broccoli on toast, one-pot soups and stews like Persian noodle as well as one-pan fritters and pancakes such as golden rosti with ancho chilli chutney. But our favourite has to be the Preserved Lemon and Herb-baked Orzo dish, as seen on Vogue.co.uk
